It is so hard to believe that we are heading into our last full week of school! We will wrap up our academics this week. We’ll have our last Opinion Writing activities and on Thursday, students will complete the End of Module 5 independent math activity. As with past independent activities, please do not assist your student with any of the problems so they can show what they know. Thank you!
Also this week, we will have a live class meeting on Wednesday from 10:00-10:30. Per district policy, a parent must be present with their student during the meeting. This will be a fun gathering with no real agenda other than a time to be together one last time as a class. I will send a link out on Monday.
By the way, did you catch our staff farewell video? Click the link to watch it if you haven’t done so already. https://youtu.be/p1fLokzvdvI
Here are a few reminders for these last days:
Yearbooks will be available for pick-up the week of June 15th. Watch for info in the school newsletter for details. If you forgot to order your yearbook, you can place a late order for $30 at link.entourageyearbooks.com and your yearbook will be shipped directly to your home. Not sure if you ordered? Go to link.entourageyearbooks.com and click “track your order” on the left side of the page to enter your email and find any orders you have placed.
During this week, families will use the bus loop to to do a drive through pick-up of your child's supplies, yearbooks and medications as well as drop off library books. The schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, June 23
Last day of school. I will share a year-end slideshow on Seesaw for students to enjoy. Report cards will be posted at 5:00 pm that day.
Hi all – I hope you were able to enjoy the lovely weather this weekend before today’s gloom knocked us back into winter! I have the This Week's Learning Resources page with downloadable lesson files if you’d like to print them for pencil/paper work.
A few notes about this week:
The virtual Scholastic Book Sale is full swing and running until 5/31. Books are shipped directly to your house and 25% of the proceeds come back to Creekside. The link for the book fair is: https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/homepage.do?method=homepage&url=creeksideelementary20
We have 2 more lessons to finish up Module 4. On Thursday students will have an End of Module independent activity. Students must complete this activity entirely on their own – even if that means they can’t complete something and it is blank. Thank you! This Friday will also be our last Problem Solving Friday for the year. Students did very well with last weeks independent problem solving and will have an extra awesome challenge this week!
Thank you for all of the support your gave your kiddos during How To writing. It is definitely the most rigorous writing we do in Kindergarten and students have learned so much during this unit. This week we will begin a new genre of writing – opinion writing. This unit focuses on Kindergartners thinking about their thinking. We work on understanding what an opinion is, formulating opinions, and then expressing them in writing with supporting reasons.
We will continue on with phonics, science, social studies, and reading comprehension with Mrs. Graff.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions/concerns. Have a good week!
Happy Friday, Families! Another week of at-home learning is behind us and I am so impressed with all that we have accomplished so far. Thanks for all you are doing to support your child’s learning at home. You all are doing an amazing job and should be so proud of yourselves!
Here are some updates and curriculum notes for today:
Creekside is hosting a virtual book fair through Scholastic starting on Monday, May 18th. Creekside receives 25% of the profits and the books will be mailed directly to your house! https://www.scholastic.com/bf/creeksideelementary20
The kids are doing very well in math. Thank you for your continued support in reading all of the directions to them. I know that can be tedious. This unit is our longest unit, but we have only six more lessons to go then on to the next!
Great news - The Issaquah School District has secured the license for Lexia for next school year, which means that your child can continue to use Lexia over the summer!
Also, in addition to the reading activities in Lexia, remember Raz-Kids is a great resource for your children to practice their reading skills in the context of real books. Nothing can take the place of reading real books, but finding books at their ever-changing reading level can be challenging, especially during quarantine. I usually add Raz-Kids on the At Home Learning Calendar as action item, but I don’t put it into SeeSaw for simplicity’s sake.
I am loving reading (and listening to) your kids How To books. They always make me smile. Students have all made great progress, especially when you think back to the beginning of kindergarten!
We are heading into our last week of how-to writing. Just a heads up that on Friday (5/22) I will have everyone Pause & Post their How-Tos one last time (complete or incomplete). Please don’t worry if your child’s final book isn’t finished. It is impossible for me to get everyone to wrap up their writing on exactly the same day. If your child would like to complete their final book on their own after next Friday, they are certainly welcome to do so.
And, I will have a Writer’s Workshop parent-ed slide deck in Seesaw assigned specifically to you on Monday! I hope this will answer some great questions that I have been getting from you about Kindergarten writing.
That’s the news ‘til now. I’ll send out the calendar and update files on my website later in the weekend. As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Enjoy the weekend!
I have posted this week’s At Home Learning Calendar and lesson files. The files are posted if you’d like your student to do their work this week as pencil paper activities as opposed to online in Seesaw. Although you have access to the files for the week, please do not have your child work ahead, as each day the video lessons are a vital part of their learning and skill building.
In the spirit of continuous refinement and improvement, starting this week I will no longer post activities as "required" and "optional." This is to clear up any misunderstanding/confusion about the intention of the optional activities - and to remove them from the Seesaw queue. The activities that I post in Seesaw are the lessons for the day that I would like all students to complete. As I said in my last e-mail, if you can't get to something that is assigned, just send me a note.
Optional activities are just that - optional. I will still provide them on the This Week's Learning Resources page if you would like more learning resources for your kiddo. But, I do not need to see these items. I have also created another tab of Extra Learning Resources that are not directly tied to this week's lessons, but can serve as extra practice. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Again, my hope is to make at-home learning as streamlined and low stress for you as possible.
Have a great week!
I have posted this week’s At Home Learning Calendar and lesson files. The files are posted if you’d like your student to do their work this week as pencil paper activities as opposed to online in Seesaw. Although you have access to the files for the week, please do not have your child work ahead, as each day the video lessons are a vital part of their learning and skill building. Here are some tips for this week:
SEESAW: Again, thank you for working through figuring out how to post your child’s work to Seesaw! It seems as though most everyone is getting the hang of responding to activities digitally. For those activities that you’d like your student to complete with pencil/paper, you can upload them however is easiest for you. As long as I can read them, the method you choose to do is just fine by me!
I will continue to post all activities that are listed on the calendar in Seesaw, even if there is no “Seesaw activity” attached. I’m finding that this is a much more organized way of assigning lessons/work that is easier for all of us to manage. That said, it took a little trial and error to determine the best way to clear those assignments from your child’s Activity queue. Thanks to your feedback, I now know that when you send me your note “done”, I will approve it and send you a “like.” This clears it for you, acknowledges that I received it, and enables me to track the completion. Thanks for your flexibility here!
READING: We will continue to use Raz-kids for leveled-book reading practice. This week, I will introduce a district-provided phonics program called Lexia. This program was already in use by our building reading specialist, who raves about it. The district secured site licenses for everyone to use during the closure. Where Raz-kids provides leveled practice in fluency and comprehension, Lexia provides adaptive assessment and personalized instruction in phonics and language skills. This is a critical piece of our balanced literacy model that is difficult for me to provide with video lessons. More info to come…
WRITING: Thank you for helping your child post their writing for me to see. My goal is to provide specific feedback weekly, just like I did in our classroom. The biggest struggle with writing is how much to help them with their writing and spelling. I DO NOT expect every word to be spelled correctly. There is no need to correct every word or tell them how to spell every word they want to write. That is not developmentally appropriate and they are capable of being independent. They know how to stretch out their words, and know that every word has a vowel.
As they begin writing their own How-To books, they may say they don’t know what to write about. I will provide a lesson on How To topics with a downloadable list. We will also cover using a planner, which they are used to doing from our other units. Helping them access the various writing tools/supports is great, and the rest is up to them. We were spending up to 30 minutes each day writing independently before the closure. And it usually takes several days for them to write a book.
The How To papers and planners are on my website for you to download and print. If that doesn’t work for you, you can always use any blank paper you have at home or even a notebook. As long as the elements I am teaching about are included in your student’s writing, use whatever paper is convenient for you.
MATH: Overall, the math posts that are coming in are looking great. I am noticing that many students are not completing the second page of 2-page assignments. I always state in the directions if the activity is 2 pages. In the Seesaw editing screen, the pages are listed in the right column.
Math is also the area where you may find yourself having to help the most. The problem lies in all of the directions (especially on the problem sets). Most of them will need an adult or older sibling to read the various directions to them. When we do our problem sets in class, we do it all together for exactly this reason. The majority of the class cannot read the various directions, so we have to go problem by problem. I wish there was a way that I could take their burden off your shoulders but there are simply too many directions per page for me to be able to explain them all via my audio directions.
Thank you again for all you are doing to support your child’s learning at home. Don't hesitate to reach out if you are encountering any problems or you have any questions or concerns.
Hello Room 165 Families,
I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Here we are, ready for new learning adventures! Let me start by saying thank you for everything are doing for your kids. We have always been partners in their education, and it has never been more true than now. I know that every family has their own needs, constraints and struggles. As we go forward into this new phase of at-home learning, please let me know if you have any questions or difficulties, so I can provide help as soon as possible.
Below is a lot of helpful information as we embark on this journey together!
Seesaw will be my means of delivering all new learning. All Seesaw activities will be posted by 8:00 am each morning.There will be 3-4 activities posted every day for your child to complete. Students will complete some activities directly in Seesaw. Other activities will need to be completed on paper and then uploaded to Seesaw. I will give clear directions on the activities in Seesaw.
I will post the learning calendar here on my website that breaks down each day. There are no links as all the lessons and activities will be posted in Seesaw. You will notice that there are both required activities (listed in red and marked R) and optional activities (listed in blue and marked O).
The district directive is to provide instruction and activities for roughly 45 minutes a day at the K-1 level. My videos will be a total of 30 minutes and then the follow up work and activities might be another 30-40 minutes.
The benefit of video lessons (vs live instruction) is that you can work them into your families schedules. You can break it down into chunks to work around your families needs and time constraints.
Please note that activities will often have a video lesson component, however, it might just be a single activity. There will be audio directions to help your student be more independent when completing activities. Though, because of their age, your guidance is required. They will likely need the most help with the math problem sets (worksheets). There are often multiple directions per page and this can be confusing for young children who can't read directions yet.
I will be checking email and Seesaw throughout the day (8:00-4:30) answering questions and providing feedback. Don't hesitate to reach out and ask questions! I'm here for you.
Things to gather and prepare for this week:
Reading/Phonics - During my Seesaw video lessons, I may ask your student to participate along with me. I ask that they have either a stack of paper handy or access to a white board. They should also have something to write with handy.
Math - During the video lessons, they will sometimes be asked to participate along. So again, paper and/or a white board would be helpful. It will also be helpful for them to have a collection of 10 small items for them to use and count with during their lessons (Legos, dried beans, dried macaroni, beads.)
Writing - Please help your student get ready by putting together a lot of writing books. Our books start off as 4 pages and then we often staple more as needed. You can either staple together 4 pieces of blank white paper or you can go to my website under the "This Week's Learning Resources" tab for additional writing templates. If you have books prepared, this can help your student be more independent during their writing time. They should also have crayons, markers, pencils and erasers at their disposal.
Finally, this is uncharted territory for us all. Teaching Kindergarten online is not a natural thing, and I wish more than anything that we were all together back at Creekside. But, we will make the best of the situation as we get through together!
Sending you all my best,
Wishing you a calm, peaceful and healthy Spring Break. Reminder: there will be no EELRs next week. We will start with Essential New Learning on Monday 4/20. Please see details below.
For some family fun, check out ISDs Virtual Spring Break Adventures. Bring the kids and travel the world (and beyond) to explore the wonders of art, science, cultures and history through immersive online experiences available for free. Click here to get the details.
April 6, 2020
As I’m sure you’ve heard from the school district already, we will be moving forward with online learning through at least Friday, May 1st. Up to this point, the school district and teachers have been providing Emergency Education Learning Resources (EELRs), with the intent to review past content and keep students’ brains engaged. These activities have been purely optional. However, the mandate from Washington State and our school district superintendent has now changed. Starting on April 20th (after spring break) we will move forward with new learning and the start of Trimester 3.
Given the fact that new learning will occur and reports cards will be given at the end of the school year, the learning and activities I send out and provide will now be required and graded. We are still finalizing exactly how this learning will occur, but the main platform we will use is Seesaw, via activities and videotaped lessons. At this point, the district is stepping back from using Zoom until they are assured that security lapses have been remedied. Watching the daily video lessons and doing the activities can be done at a time that works best for your family (no assigned time). The district is aiming for roughly 45 minutes of instruction per day for Kindergarten, broken up into different videos and activities with supplemental, optional activities provided as well.
I would like to use this week to make sure everyone knows how to use Seesaw. I will post an activity on Tuesday (clearly labeled) that is REQUIRED from everyone so I can make sure that everyone is able to use Seesaw. Here is what I need from you this week:
In addition to Seesaw, we will also be using Raz-Kids as it is a way for me to track the progress of your child’s reading. Again, this week I want everyone to log into Raz-kids (either via the web/app or via Clever) so I can make sure everyone can access the program. If you cannot log in, please let me know ASAP. We will also begin using a new school district phonics resource called Lexia. More information to come soon.
I know that you may have many questions during this transition to new/online learning. PLEASE feel free to contact me so I can provide timely answers and solutions to your questions or concerns.
As always, thank you for all you are doing at home to help your child with their learning. Please give your kiddo a big hug from me and know that I am wishing you all continued health, safety, and sanity!
How To Set Up Seesaw
While school is closed, we will use Seesaw for home learning. Seesaw helps us work together to provide students with meaningful learning experiences at home. We’ll use Seesaw to share learning activities and resources, capture your child’s learning, and communicate about student progress and needs.
Below are steps for setting up Seesaw at home and additional resources to help you support your child learn to use the tool.
Set up your child in the Seesaw Class App:
For devices like tablets or phones, download the Seesaw Class App
For laptop or desktop computers, go to app.seesaw.me
Click I’m a Student
Home learning codes were sent to you via e-mail. Find your child’s text code and enter it in the TEXT CODE box. You can also log in by scanning the QR code. Print your child’s page and keep it somewhere safe –like on the refrigerator!
How students log in at home video | one-pager in English
How to use Seesaw video playlist (The Learning Tools Sequence is very helpful)
Tips for Families
Once your child is logged into our class site, they can watch a video message from me (my first – please be gentle ;) and complete the first assigned activity. This will be good practice and they can play around in Seesaw to learn about the different tools they can use.
Please contact me if you have any questions or need addition information.

Good Monday morning families. I hope you are all doing well as we head into week 3 of quarantine. I, myself, feel like the novelty has really worn off and it is time to dig deep to keep what is really important in the forefront of my mind: The health and safety of family and friends and deep gratitude and prayers for all those on the front lines, sacrificing their own health and safety for the greater good.
Please remember that in this unprecedented time, connection and self-care are more important than ever to stay sane and healthy. Parents, even though we can't physically be with extended family and friends, please keep reaching out to others virtually to maintain healthy connections. Take time every day to recharge - whether it be exercise, meditation, art therapy, talking with a friend or relative on the phone, or even just deep breathing and positive self-talk. What we are going through on a global scale is hard, really really hard. Please give yourself grace and know that we are all feeling these same things, together.
Home-schooling can be both a source of welcome structure and intense anxiety. With all that is happening, please don't stress about academics. Health and safety are the real priorities. Remember, all students are going through the same experience. However, with that being said, I do have some more resources to pass along. ;) Our state and district Superintendent have both recently reiterated the point that we are to continue to review and reinforce past learning and not dive into new curriculum at this time. Click here for a link to Chris Reykdal's latest announcement.
Our kindergarten team at Creekside has put together an At home learning calendar for the week (and we will continue to do so weekly moving forward). We have taken some of the ideas from the learning links the district has provided and added some additional ideas of our own. This calendar is purely optional and all activities are ungraded. We simply put it together as a way to give some more structure to the day and to help consolidate all the many resources that have been shared with you. If you are looking for even more activities, please refer to the Waklet links in the right column as there are additional activities listed there.
If you are looking for more paper/pencil tasks for your child, I wanted to remind you about the different files that I have uploaded on my website under the At Home Learning Resources tab (at the top of my website). These are simply review tasks (sight words, numbers, writing resources, basic skills, etc). If you want your child to have a break from a screen, these are good options.
Finally, thank you to those of you who have helped your child respond to the activity on Seesaw. I will continue adding fun activities there and hope to also incorporate Zoom for some "facetime fun" this week.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or needs you may have this week.
Stay safe and healthy!

It has been wonderful to hear from so many of you! Thanks, especially, to those who have sent photos of your kiddos. It is a thrill for me to see their smiling faces and to know what they are doing during this time away from school.
Several of you have asked specifically about Zearn and are expressing that the activities are too simple for your students. Zearn for Kindergarten is very different than it is for other grades. Instead of being aligned specifically to each lesson of our Eureka Math Curriculum, it instead supports the theme of the learning in Kindergarten. That means that it is focused solely on number sense and numeration. I know that the beginning activities, which focus on numbers to 5, are simple but they are foundational skills to progress to the next level. In other words, I can’t change student levels – they just need to power through those early activities to get to the next levels. ;)
For those of you who would like targeted math work from our curriculum, please follow this link to the Downloadable Resources page on the Embarc website. This website aligns exactly to our Eureka Math Curriculum. In the list of resources, click on the Problem Sets and Homework [English] link. From there, choose the download for Module 3. This is our most recent unit that we covered in class. You can download and print the whole pack or choose the ones that most interest your kiddo to work on. Please hold off on downloading Module 4 or beyond until we get further directives from ISD on future instruction.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information. Stay tuned for more from me for next week’s At Home Learning. Please give your kiddos a big hug from me!

Dear Students & Families,
My goodness I have missed you all! It has been too long since I have seen all of your smiling faces and I so wish we could be in our classroom, learning and laughing together. But since we can’t right now, I have added lots of learning resources to this website. You’ll find helpful links to the left, ISD learning activities and resources to the right, and a page full of At Home Learning Resources linked from the top of this page. These resources are totally optional and you shouldn’t feel compelled to use all of them in a day or two.
Parents, I know none of you signed up to homeschool your child. I too am trying to keep my high schoolers motivated and on-task, while attempting to work and navigate this surreal new “normal” we are all trying to adapt to. Homeschooling is hard. Please be patient with yourself and with your kiddos. This is a scary and stressful time for us all. Please don’t add extra pressure on yourselves and your family by stressing about school too much.
Here are a few pieces of advice and tips:
Hang in there parents! We will get through this together. I will update my class website weekly with learning resources you can work on with your child if you choose. Let me know if there is anything you need from me to support your child’s learning at home. Please take good care of yourselves and know that I am thinking about you and your sweet kiddos constantly, wishing for your good health and safety!

Given the current concern over the Corona virus, we know that many of you are making the family choice to keep your children at home as a precaution. Per school district policy, all curriculum-based papers that have been distributed during their absence will be available when your child returns to school. However, it should be noted that not all in-class instruction and learning can be replicated at home so there will be components of daily learning from the classroom that cannot be accessed due to the collaborative nature of a classroom-based program.
With that being said, below is a rough break down of what we will covering in class for the week of March 9-13 as well as a reminder of online resources you have available to you to use from home.
Math: We are currently finishing up Module 3 which has us comparing numbers. You can click on the website https://embarc.online for a breakdown of the lessons and resources I may use. Click “kindergarten” at the top of the page and then scroll down to the lesson you want. Tomorrow we are doing lesson 24 and I typically do a lesson per day. There may be a short video and/or some google slides or a PowerPoint presentation that gives a bit of information about the lesson. Most of our lessons are very hands up so simply using the online resources may or may not give you and your child all the information.
You can also click on “downloadable resources” where you can find a link to our problem sets (which is our workbook) and there is also a “application problem” tab. Application problems are a quick problem solving task that usually gets them ready for the lesson of the day or reviews a skill from a previous lesson.
In addition to using Embarc, you can also log-into Clever (I passed out an index card at conferences with your child’s log-in info). On this site your child can use Zearn which are math games that go along with our math curriculum. If you no longer have this log-in card, their log-in info can also be found on Family Access on their student information page.
Finally, your child can also continue to practice writing their numbers to 20 (correctly and without reversals up), practice drawing, naming and recognizing the geometric shapes and even practice simple addition and subtraction problems (drawing pictures to help them solve them).
Reading: The best thing to do with your child is simply have them continue to practice reading. Log-in to Raz-Kids (www.kidsa-z.com) and my user name is mbramble0 (that's a zero on the end). They should know their password because we use it a lot here at school. They can also go to www.starfall.com for a lot of other phonics and reading resources.
Writing: We are ending our unit on Personal Narratives and this week we will be starting our work on “How-To” books. Over the next 5 weeks, they will be learning how to write books where they teach other people how to do things, step by step (How to Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich or How to Brush Your Teeth). They will be using words such as first, next, then, last, etc. You can have your children practice breaking down simple tasks and describing how to do something and they can even work on writing simple 4-5 page books describing what to do with words and pictures.
I also encourage them to just keep practicing their writing. They can write grocery lists, letters to Grandma, make up stories, keep a journal, etc. Just like reading, the best way for them to develop these skills is simply to practice. Encourage them to use their best guess spelling, put finger spaces between words and to use LOWERCASE letters.
Handwriting: We continue to work our forming our lowercase letters CORRECTLY. Once again, if you log-in to Clever, there is also a HIIT button which is our Handwriting Without Tears writing curriculum. You can click on it and see what there is to learn. There is also an app for this curriculum for tablet use. To practice their handwriting, you can also print off 3 lined handwriting paper online (or buy a handwriting practice book at Target or Amazon). Finally, simply have them practice their handwriting by writing all types of random words, making sure they are using lowercase letters, just as I mentioned in the “writing” section above.
Science: We will be starting our weather unit soon where we will be talking about different types of weather.
Keep reading, keep writing, and stay healthy and safe!!!!!
100th Day Fun! My goodness how time flies. It's hard to believe we have already hit this milestone, but it is exciting to see all the amazing growth in these students since the first day of school. I am truly blessed to be a part of this special year with your sweet kiddos!
There's so much great work happening in Room 165! Highlights include:
In other news, we have been making weekly trips to the Computer Lab. Students are learning how to manage themselves and take good care of the equipment in the lab, how to log in and out, mouse skills, how to manage their headphones and volume control, and how to access and use certain shortcuts and websites for learning. As you can imagine, the first few visits to the lab with Kindergartners is tricky business and not for the faint of heart. I am happy to report, though, that on our 4th visit today they ROCKED IT! The kiddos confidently found their assigned spots, plugged in their headphones, logged into RAZ kids, and worked quietly and diligently for 45 minutes! I was so thrilled and impressed! WAY TO GO KINDERS!!
Some bits 'n bobs:
Lastly, big thanks to those parents who volunteered for our Art Docent lesson this week. Students had a ball creating their Pigeon Valentine's Party!
That's all for now. As always, please contact me with any questions/concerns.
Hello Families - We are starting up our take-home sight word program this week. In your child's folder, you will see a purple information sheet and her/his first set of sight words to practice at home. When your child knows the sight words in a *SNAP* in random order, send them back to school. We’ll assess them and if they get them all, we’ll send home the next set to practice. Click here for more information.
You will notice an extra folder full of work coming home with students today. These are pieces of work that I held on to through Trimester 1 for report card grading.
Also, we counted our overflowing Creekside Coin jar today and the class has met the next coin goal of 100. We will have a class celebration next week. Stay tuned for details.
I hope you all enjoy the weekend. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns.
Just wanted to share a fun pic of the class with their turkey hats on. We do a lot of great hats in Kindergarten, but this one is truly magnificent.
I am also including a pic of our Gratitude board. The kids did a fantastic job today during our Friendsgiving learning all about etiquette and best manners. They hope to impress all their special adults and influence their friends and cousins at your family celebrations ;)
As I said to the students today, I am so grateful that we are a learning family. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Enjoy your family time during this long weekend.
Hello on this beautiful sunny day! Lots to share with you today:
Lots of announcements today:
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Happy Friday, Families!
Wow, what a great week of learning! It is truly amazing to see the growth in your students in just 10 days of Kindergarten. They are really getting the hang of our school routines and expectations. They are becoming a cohesive group of classmates and friends. I am enjoying getting to know them and can already tell they LOVE writer’s workshop, learning to draw, and math!
There is so much info to share:
My gosh, that’s enough for now! Enjoy your weekend with your sweet kiddos!
Welcome to Kindergarten in Room 165! I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of you at Meet the Teacher and Family Connection Meetings next week. We are going to have a great year of learning, playing, and growing together! Please check this website often for upcoming events, announcements, our academic focus, helpful links and home practice.
There are a few things you can do to help your child have a successful transition to Kindergarten. Have your child practice:
Most of all, give lots of encouragement and reassurance to your child as they navigate this exciting new experience. Kindergarten is truly a special time in your child's life and I am so happy that I get to be a part of it with you and your kiddo!
